We are a family of four living in an ex-guesthouse (closed due to Covid-19) on the beautiful wild West Coast of New Zealand. We are located an hour south of Hokitika, and 30 minutes north of Franz Josef Glacier. If you love nature, hiking, fishing, hunting, exploring.. you’ll love it here!
Even though the business is closed, it’s a large building on a large property, and it’s very hard to keep up with it on our own, especially as we have “real” jobs now too.
The help is pretty straightforward like cleaning, gardening, painting, fencing, firewood etc but if there is something in particular you'd like to learn while you’re here (anything from practical/outdoor skills to cooking and crafting), please ask and we'll see what we can come up with to fit you! We want you to enjoy your time here so we are very flexible about the kind of work, and the hours/days of work.
The children are aged 12 and 13 and will respect your space but are also great fun. There is also a very energetic Labrador puppy, an elderly but very cuddly Manx cat and a cockatiel who acts friendly but it’s a trap.
We do recommend having your own car to make the most of the area - we’re some kilometres from the nearest town (though right on the main highway) and our place can feel quite isolated if you can’t go anywhere - though we’re happy to drop you off or pick you up if your destination aligns with our plans for the day.

If you want to experience life with a very relaxed rural kiwi family, we fit that bill! We’d like to take you hunting or fishing if time or weather allows. If you're not into that, we can lend you kayaks, give you advice on local attractions, hikes, or you can just simply relax or read a book. Also, if you’ve been on the road, here is a peaceful place to stay, recharge, enjoy hot showers and do your laundry.

We ask for about 4 hours help per day, five days per week, as well as participating in our family's normal daily housework. I’m not the time police, we work around your plans so you can make the most of your time here. Weekends are our busiest time though so please expect to work those days and go easy during the week.
We provide a private room and your own bathroom, wifi, and most of your food if you do not have any special dietary requirements. If you do have a specific diet (vegan/veg/allergies) you'll need to provide your own proteins and specialty foods to hold you over for a few days, until we know more about you and can order what you need.

We both want to give thanks for having us in your home for two weeks. You invited us into your home with open arms and were really wonderful hosts.
